The Health Law Partners Announces the Opening of Its Atlanta Office

Expanding the HLP's Presence Beyond Its Existing Michigan and New York Locations, Daniel B. Brown Opens The Health Law Partners' Atlanta Office

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - September 1, 2010) -  THE HEALTH LAW PARTNERS, P.C. ("HLP"), (, a nationally recognized boutique health law firm, is pleased to announce today the opening of its Atlanta, Georgia office. Daniel B. Brown, (, with more than 20 years of health care experience, will be resident in the Atlanta office as the Managing Shareholder. The Firm will operate in Georgia under the name Brown, Dresevic, Gustafson, Iwrey, Kalmowitz and Pendleton THE HEALTH LAW PARTNERS, LLC.

With offices in New York, Michigan and now Atlanta, HLP boasts accomplished attorneys with practices focused exclusively on the regulatory, corporate, and litigation needs of health care clients throughout the United States. HLP has acquired a reputation as one of the nation's pre-eminent health law firms. Its attorneys advise a wide range of local, regional and national health care providers, investors, management companies and health systems on complex health care matters. 

The addition of its Atlanta office and Mr. Brown further enhances HLP's reputation and its ability to provide quality and responsive counsel across the spectrum of legal and regulatory health care matters. Mr. Brown brings a particular emphasis on legal issues impacting sleep medicine, an area in which he is considered one of the country's foremost experts. 

"Dan literally wrote the book on health law compliance for sleep labs," said Abby Pendleton, President of HLP. "He speaks and publishes frequently on sleep medicine issues, is a faculty member of the Atlanta School of Sleep Medicine and Technology in Atlanta, and is a member of the Board of Directors of the National Sleep Foundation," she added. "His client base reflects the full range of sleep medicine providers and delivery methods."

"The opportunity to join HLP is a classic serendipity story," said Brown. "Eleven years ago I worked across the table from Carey Kalmowitz, then a young Detroit lawyer, on the acquisition of a hospital dialysis business. I found that same lawyer, now an HLP founder, across the table from me earlier this year in a New York transaction."

"I liked what I saw in HLP -- a vibrant and accomplished group of attorneys with a vision and focus similar to mine, with a fast-growing, national client base. I recognized a perfect opportunity to work with other health care lawyers who know how to practice at the highest level, provide superior client service and market their skills," Brown added. Echoing that theme, fellow HLP founding partners, Adrienne Dresevic and Robert Iwrey, agreed that the addition of Dan was a "perfect strategic fit."
